Diabetes is one of the leading non communicable diseases affecting public health. Though it is termed as a deficiency rather than a disease, uncontrolled diabetes will lead to complications resulting in renal failure/liver failure/ heart-attack/loss of sight or foot problems leading to amputation if not diagnosed, monitored and treated on time. In order to avoid these complications blood glucose level should be periodically monitored. Conventional methods used for this purpose uses sharp needle which leads to loss of blood and has a risk of infections to the patients. In order to overcome such problems, a non-invasive glucose monitoring system is necessary. In this study, we propose a design, a cost effective and non-invasive glucose monitoring device using near infrared spectroscopy techniques. In addition, GSM module attached to this device will enable wireless data sharing facility. The results can therefore also be transmitted easily to the doctor for examination. The results obtained can also be stored for future records and also to analyse variations in blood glucose level and adjustment of dosage of medicine. The current study shows that our device has accuracy level equivalent to that of conventionally available devices and also provides convenient, hassle free usage to the patients.
